Daniel Rowe

Daniel Rowe is a historian of the twentieth century United States and Departmental Lecturer in the Faculty of History. His research focuses on U.S. political, urban, and economic history, particularly in the decades after the 1960s. He is currently working on a book tentatively entitled Beyond Reaganomics: The Long Economic Crisis and the Transformation of American Capitalism. This project examines reaction of U.S. elected officials, members of the business community and labour unions to the overlapping industrial and financial crises of the late 1970s and early 1980s. He is broadly interested in changing attitudes about the responsibilities of government in post-Second World War America, the history of deindustrialisation, as well as social movement and protest politics.
